Macrolane is one of the innovative methods for cosmetic enhancement of various body parts. Macrolane is an injectable used to give volume and contour to certain areas of the body. It ultimately improves the overall appearance of the body. These dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid gel and are injected into the treatment area. They are mostly used for enhancing breasts, buttocks, and calves. Their results are not permanent but they are considered the most effective treatment as they require insignificant time for recovery. There are no severe side effects associated with Macrolane injections. However, post-procedure you may experience slight tenderness, swelling and bruising but these side effects subside quickly.
Although Macrolane injections may be an effective treatment in the field of cosmetic surgery, yet it needs to be properly planned. While planning for the treatment, you need to consider a lot of things associated with the procedure. One of the most important things is to find an experienced and highly qualified cosmetic or plastic surgeon. Another important issue that needs to be discussed is the cost of a Macrolane injection. Here, we will discuss some of the important factors that affect the cost of treatment.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Treatment
The cost of Macrolane injections is not the same for every treatment and varies from patient to patient. Macrolane injections last for several months and then you will have to get injected again. The touchup treatments often cost less as compared to the first treatment. This is because less Macrolane is injected as some of the previous gel is still there in the breast tissue. So, if the cost of all the touchup treatments is added, Macrolane injections may become expensive than long term surgery. However, most patients prefer Macrolane injections over surgical procedures as they can tell the surgeon how much change they need. The amount of Macrolane can be increased or decreased if the initial amount of Macrolane does not seem right.
Another important factor that can influence the cost of the treatment is the treatment area. As mentioned before, Macrolane can be injected in various areas. The cost is determined according to the area in which you want to have Macrolane injected. Generally, the cost of having Macrolane in buttocks is slightly higher than having it in breasts. So, it is recommended to discuss the cost of Macrolane with your surgeon during the consultation.
Besides the above-mentioned factors, some other general factors affect the cost of treatment. These factors include.
- The surgeon’s fee – A highly qualified plastic surgeon with considerable experience often charges more than the one who is new in the field.
- The reputation of the clinic – the reputation of the clinic also influences the cost of treatment. If you get treated in a newly established clinic then you will have to pay less for the treatment.
- Additional charges – prescriptions and tests – if required any – are some other factors that may influence the cost of Macrolane injections.
In short, the cost of Macrolane injections is not the same for everyone. So, if you want to know about the exact cost, then you will have to consult an experienced plastic surgeon.
